The 019 Blade is a 5 batten wave sail with the perfect blend of power and control.
For riders demanding dependable performance across a wide wind range you simply can’t beat the stability and control that 5 battens provide. Based on this fundamental we built the Blade to be the ultimate all-rounder wave sail.
Increased luff curve adds skin tension to hold the profile forward and low to maximise wind range. A Dacron luff panel allows elastic expansion under load, furthering the draft-forward bias when conditions get extreme. The control oriented geometry sets the rake angles to maintain downforce at the mast base whilst setting the clew below shoulder height where it can be most easily managed. Stance is balanced with the upper shaping moved forward to put less pressure on the back leg and reduce fin load.
Constructed entirely out of premium X-Ply, the Blade is one of the most durable sails on the market, yet intelligent design means it’s also one of the lightest. SpiderFibre technology has radically reduced swing weight whilst also creating a much stronger clew. Dyneema window X-Ply allows for unrestricted vision. Upper panels in eM3 reduce swing weight. The new highly durable yet lightweight eM4 material is used in the high load foot area. Double width seams lock every panel in place. Engineered for performance.
The 019 Blade is the sail to choose for all-round high performance.
UPGRADES FOR 20I9
/ INCREASED STABILITY AND CONTROL
This high abrasion area is made from only 1 panel and does not carry any exposed seams, preventing any potential weak point in this area. As a result, seam creep and seam-related failure have been eliminated.
DURABLE AND LIGHTWEIGHT
eM3 is developed to combine the performance of the e-series cloths with maximum durability. The addition of a 90-degree pre preg polyester scrim has provided unique tear resistant characteristics and the off-axis loads are carried through the 22-degree X-ply fibres. The red and new blue adhesive maintain the UV resistance and tear strength, while the reduced film thickness significantly reduces the weight. The use in the upper panels reduces not only the overall sail weight, but also the swing weight, aiding manoeuvrability and control. Used in the BLADE and in the FREEK.
All Severne wave sails have 25mm double stitched window seams. The wider, single colour seam tape ensures maximum tear strength and crash resistance
Protects your board from impact and neatly covers the foot detailing. It incorporates the rope stash pocket for easy storage of your downhaul rope.
A web of fibreglass filament that disburses loads across seams and throughout the body of the sail. By using stronger, lighter fibres and reducing sail patching, we can measurably reduce weight and swing weigh and at the same time, increase strength.
